A Quote by Kuan Yin on indigenous tribes, reincarnation, environment, divinity of humanity, good and evil, and ego

"Human mistakes and inaccuracies are no less important than divinity. The human condition creates divinity in the higher self. Thus, it is very important to be human and not to shun or hate our humanity. The incredible process of being human allows for the higher self to acknowledge and extract divinity from one's trials and tribulations..The truth is one must be fully human for the divine part of self to be more in tune. Rejecting the human body assures one will have to come back, return to the lessons here on earth. It means ‘you didn't get it'," counsels Kuan Yin. "The indigenous tribes are the most powerful as many of them are so in harmony with nature as to be really, really divinely human. They're so in touch with their humanity that they're totally in tune with their Diva nature. They know that human/nature harmony is the crux of spirituality. Of course there is always the criticism: that "better than" mindset. Humans say they're better than each other. And they say they're better than nature. But they're not. It's ludicrous to compare the intelligence of other living creatures to human intelligence. Plants have enormous intelligences and spirituality. However, the "better than" mindset greatly contributes to the ongoing environmental destruction. The earth is trying to teach humans that everything is spirit. Eventually, humans will learn. It's just another way to understand divinity. Spirit works through one's own humanity and the earth. Everything here (on earth) is for the divine evolution of all energies. "

"I'm reminded of how passionate Kuan Yin is about the importance of being human on this earth," continues trance channel, Lena Lees.

"It's the most important thing in your existence," ordinates Kuan Yin. "Your existence is eternal. This phase (of your soul) is so important because you learn so much in human form. This is where the individual's ‘spark' or existence can expand into bigger, more powerful energies, not entities. Entities are closed systems whereas energies are open systems," differentiates Kuan Yin. Some energies are not as potent. The only way to develop a potent energy is to spend an existence on the earth. There, one can develop a compassionate nature so that when passing onto other dimensions, one can be of help. When one leaves one's earth body one will need to fully understand compassion to be helpful, effective. When you leave the earth you have a lot more power. It won't be ego-based power. Rather it will be beyond ego, beyond "good" and "evil". In fact, "evil" is just a label as everything is intermixed. The pendulum just appears to swing back and forth."


"Humanity is misunderstood. It's a powerful place to be when it is fully experienced. However, it is often underestimated," explains Kuan Yin.

"Unless one fully experiences one's humanity, one will have to experience earth again and again. One will have to repeat the lessons offered here upon the earth. It is possible that one need not have to reincarnate. Many don't live up to their full potential because they're afraid of death. I want to emphasize here that only the body dies. People get too attached (to their physicality). But, they have to. One's consciousness must be fairly strong in order for the soul's desire to continue. The more we feel our humanity, the more help we can give and the more joy we can create.
 

"You can't change people. You can love them and give to them. If they can't receive, it's not a reason not to love them, unless impossible conditions have been set upon the relationship, unless it is a kind of conditional love. Do your best. However, don't fall into the trap of getting a reward for doing good deeds. Do a good deed because it is the right thing to do.

"It is important to accept that the human condition is temporary, fleeting. It's filled with pain and suffering, beauty, strange tastes, odors of death, everything that exists in the universe.

Problems are created when one is so obsessed with his/her own death, when one is too attached to their life. This attachment to a single incarnation causes the species to play out gruesome deaths. If you knew you were more than just this life, you would not plunder the land, each other.

"So many souls, energies have a certain perception of others. They believe they're separate from each other. Such perceptions can collect into an energy agreeing upon a specific direction the country will take. The lesson is acceptance of differences. Don't forget you are a part of everything and everything is a part of you."


"If every human being recognized the power of the love and forgiveness principle, all consciousness on earth would change instantly. Indeed, thoughts can change the course of history. Sometimes, all it takes is enough people knowing about a certain concept."

A Quote by John Naisbitt on climate change, global warming, environment, and sustainability

THE DILEMMA OF THE NONEXPERT

Who and what are we to believe? Where to begin? Read a significant number of the 963 books on global warming listed on Amazon.com, and, to keep in the balance, read from the 1,054 books (July 2006) on global cooling and the coming ice age?

Amid all the conflicting claims and advice, it is sometimes difficult to know whom to believe about the environment, I cannot stop my life the next 2 to 10 years to become an expert on the environment or sustainability. Nor can any of us. I can only use my experience and best judgment.

The debate is exacerbated by the superior tone of those who are so sure about global warming. Global warming has become a religion, and those who don't buy into its gloom and doom scenarios are infidels who must be banished from any public forum.

I believe the environment must be protected and that regulations is often necessary. No matter who is right about the environment and sustainability, I support attending to the environment because the remedies are so attractive. I want a clean air and clean water for everybody. I vote for nature. But exaggerating problems without any real idea of the score of the game distorts society's priorities and makes it hard for citizens and leaders to make the best decisions.

A Quote by Julie A. Barnes on climate change, global warming, environment, books, and green living

Some countries of the world are like people fighting on a large boat. In the middle of their battle over how to catch the biggest fish, they look up and realize that the fine boat is sinking, and everyone is going down.  Their next fight will be for basic survival, and they will need to rely on one another, floating far from shore in the angry sea.

A Quote by Robert O. Becker, M. D. on electromagnetic fields, danger, pollution, environment, and geomancy

I have no doubt in my mind that, at the present time, the greatest polluting element in the earth's environment is the proliferation of electromagnetic fields.

A Quote by Edward O. Wilson on environment, insects, and mankind

If all mankind were to disappear, the world would regenerate back to the rich state of equilibrium that existed ten thousand years ago. If insects were to vanish, the environment would collapse into chaos.

A Quote by Alan Watts on alan watts, the book, nature, self, environment, bodies, skin, interdependence, and life

The hostile attitude of conquering nature ignores the basic interdependence of all things and events---that the world beyond the skin is actually an extension of our own bodies---and will end in destroying the very environment from which we emerge and upon which our whole life depends.

Alan Watts (1915 - 1973)
